Abstract

The point spread function (PSF) of an imaging system indicates how a particular system degrades the image of a point source. The effects of scatterers on the image as a whole can be determined through a convolution with a particular intensity distribution. Multiple scattering effects causes a widening of the PSF when imaging in a dense scattering medium. It has been hypothesized that polarization-difference imaging (PDI) has a narrower PSF than polarization-sum (PS) imaging allowing for less blurring in images. The PSF for an elemental electric dipole source imaged by PS and PD imaging through a slab of scattering medium are explored using a Monte Carlo simulation.
